Don't you just love colour?

For the first time in ages I dyed yarn.

I wanted to knit a fabulous shawl pattern that used sock yarn(wollmeise to be specific) I couldn't find any sock yarn but a search through cupboards found a skein of dark greens which I'm using for the shawl.

Pamuya is the pattern name and it is almost a sampler of stitches.
However the search did turn up 7 skeins of assorted undyed yarn.

Obviously you can't leave it like that so it had to be dyed.

What do you think?

As you know my passion for bright colours and all things purple then you don't need me to tell you that I like your latest dyeing.
Nice blog look too. Cheerful Orange.
